Minor Wheat Exporters Expand Sales and Increase Competition
Sales by a number of relatively small wheat exporters in 2001/02 are forecast to nearly double to 9 million tons because of better crops and, in the case of India, large stocks. With relatively low costs of production, these supplies will be competitively priced and generally considered to be poorer quality.
With those additional supplies of low-cost wheat available to the world market, traditional exporters of both wheat and feedgrains will face intensified competition. The projected 4 million ton increase in exports by these minor exporters will exceed the expansion in world imports. In addition, these countries are expected to import 1.5 million tons less than the previous year.
